Special Issue on Leveraging Adaptive Courseware

Deadline: November 15, 2017

In collaboration with the Personalized Learning Consortium at the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities, Current Issues in Emerging eLearning announces a call for papers for a special issue on leveraging adaptive courseware and adaptive learning.

The focus of this special issue will be new empirical research on the use of adaptive courseware and adaptive learning with a goal of advancing our understanding of effective leveraging of tools. The issue will be intentionally diverse, accepting papers that include launching, implementing and scaling use of adaptive courseware and adaptive learning. Examples from higher education, especially those involving introductory and gateway courses, are especially sought, but other educational (K-12) and training organizations may also submit papers.
